The wine was fine, but we paired it wrongly. A red to drink with that special person.
It has a very nice colour. Nuts presence on the nose. The best aftertaste of Paarl.

At sight has a very strong cherry colour. Good smoked and toasted aromas. The Spice Route Chakalaka is a well bodied wine .
We enjoyed it in a barbecue.
Perfect with friends.
